Golden hour: RoC Brightening Vitamin C collection

When it comes to my daytime skincare routine, one thing that I have to include now is Vitamin C.

A few months ago I participated in a Zoom call with Skinceuticals where they talked about their Vitamin C serums and the importance of adding Vitamin C into your routine.  If you suffer from uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fines lines, or dullness (which honestly, who doesn’t have one of those?), then it’s time you started to incorporate a Vitamin C product into your routine.

In case you aren’t familiar with what Vitamin C (also known as L-Ascorbic acid) does, and why you should use it, let me entertain you.  Vitamin C is great for protecting your skin against free radicals from sunlight that causes damage to skin cells.  It also helps with stimulating collagen production, which is helpful for improving the visible signs of aging.  In addition to all this, it brightens your skin and can help with hyperpigmentation.

Now the Skinceuticals Vitamin C serums are on the pricier end of things, but if you are looking for a more affordable option, then RoC has your back.  They recently introduced a Vitamin C collection earlier this year, which contains products aimed to give you younger-looking, brighter, and more even skin tone.

The RoC Vitamin C collection contains four products, three of which they sent me.  The collection contains a 10 per cent active Vitamin C blend and will help you attain younger-looking skin.

Start first with the Multi Correxion Revive + Glow Gel Cleanser (C$14.99), which is a cleanser that is clinically proven to give you brighter and more radiant skin.  This cleanser contains a formula with a potent combination of glycolic acid to resurface and extract skin-dulling impurities, as well as Vitamin C to give you brighter, smoother, and more even skin.

You can use this cleanser for both morning and night, and over time you will notice smoother skin and better tone and texture.

Now that your skin is clean and prepped, go in with the RoC Multi Correxion Revive + Glow Daily Serum (C$43.99).  This serum contains a supercharged formula that gives you more luminous skin, as well as visibly reduced lines and wrinkles.  It contains a 10 per cent active Vitamin C blend and is lightweight enough to use daily.  The Vitamin C blend contains a highly stable form of Vitamin C with complementary peptides, antioxidants, and advanced hydrators for better efficacy.

Definitely apply this serum in the morning before your moisturizer and then make sure to apply SPF (very important).  You can also apply this at night, but it’s most important to apply during the day. I don’t usually apply a Vitamin C at night (I like to use different serums for nighttime use), but if this is the only one you have, then you can definitely apply it at night.

Finally, to round out the routine, apply the Multi Correxion Revive + Glow Gel Cream (C$43.99).  This moisturizer gives skin 24-hour hydration, as well as boosted radiance and a more plump complexion.  The formula is a gel-cream hybrid and won’t leave you with a greasy feeling.  After time you’ll notice more luminous skin that looks brighter and tighter.

You can use this moisturizer both morning and night. I like using it in the morning since I have a more heavy-duty moisturizer for nighttime use already.  For night time use, RoC also has the Revive + Glow Night Serum Capsules, which is a more potent serum with 20 per cent pure Vitamin C.  I didn’t receive these to try, but if you are looking for something more serious to up your Vitamin C game, then I would look into these.

Overall, whether you use this regimen or not, adding in Vitamin C to your skincare routine is a  must.  Vitamin C is such a necessary part of skincare and if you are in your mid-to-late 20s and early 30s, then I would highly recommend looking into picking up a Vitamin C product for you.  The great thing about RoC is it is more affordable than other lines out there and is easy to find since you can grab it at the drugstore.
